Starting Over at Acorn Cottage by Kate Forster
"I loved this book. Sometimes we all need to escape and this book was a complete escape. As always with this author’s writing the descriptions are vivid enough for a complete immersion and from early on I was hooked. Highly recommend to anyone who lik" Read more of this review »
Starting Over at Acorn Cottage by Kate Forster
"The cosy village setting was definitely a welcome one and for me added an extra element to enjoy. The story was full of emotion - from warmth and love to sadness. I really liked the mysterious element too.

Parts of this book are brilliant insights into the load that women carry to keep the world running. Parts of it made me want to scream at the selfishness and lack of self-awareness of the author. Also, her husband sounded truly awful.

Educated by Tara Westover
“No comma, no period, no adjective or adverb was beneath his interest. He made no distinction between grammar and content, between form and substance. A poorly written sentence was a poorly conceived idea, and in his view the grammatical logic was as much in need of correction. “Tell me,” he would say, “why have you placed this comma here? What relationship between these phrases are you hoping to establish?”

Extraordinary writing. Extraordinary story. Extraordinary woman. This book will stay with me for a lifetime. Thank you Tara Westover for writing this wonderful, inspiring and insightful memoir.
Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“I've seen women insist on cleaning everything in the house before they could sit down to write... and you know it's a funny thing about housecleaning... it never comes to an end. Perfect way to stop a woman. A woman must be careful to not allow over-responsibility (or over-respectabilty) to steal her necessary creative rests, riffs, and raptures. She simply must put her foot down and say no to half of what she believes she "should" be doing. Art is not meant to be created in stolen moments only.”

“And then he kissed her. Slow and easy, just their mouths touching, and then he felt her tongue. He let his join hers as they explored each other's mouths.”
Kate Forster, Head Over High Heels

“The last seven weeks have been crap without you. All I wanted was to talk to you, see you again Kiss you.”
Kate Forster, Unlucky Break

“What exactly constitutes an emergency in a modelling agency? Two girls fighting to death with a hair straightener?”

“So we dream on. Thus we invent our lives. We give ourselves a sainted mother, we make our father a hero; and someone’s older brother and someone’s older sister – they become our heroes too. We invent what we love and what we fear. There is always a brave lost brother – and a little lost sister, too. We dream on and on: the best hotel, the perfect family, the resort life. And our dreams escape us almost as vividly as we can imagine them… That’s what happens, like it or not. And because that’s what happens, this is what we need: we need a good, smart bear… Coach Bob knew it all along: you’ve got to get obsessed and stay obsessed. You have to keep passing the open windows.”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire
